RB Leipzig nearly signed Mbappe, claims Rangnick

12 Octobre 2017

The young Frenchman played a huge role in winning Monaco the League 1 title and also helped them reach the semi-final in Champions League competition.

He has since become the world's second most expensive player after joining Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth £162m (180m euros).

Prior to his move to the Parc des Princes, Mbappe was being tracked by a number of Europe's top clubs, with all of Arsenal, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City having been linked with moves for the prodigious teenager.

KYLIAN MBAPPE nearly joined RB Leipzig two years ago - before his stunning rise with Monaco and summer exit to Paris Saint-Germain.

Speakling to Bild, Rangnick said that he had a conversation with Mbappe's father that nearly altered the player's career, though his inability to honour a promise was the deciding factor. The problem was back then we just separated from our coach Alexander Zorniger.

'It was shortly after the winter break 2015, so at that moment we didn't know who our next manager would be and how everything would continue.

"Kylian's father said to me, if I could say for certain that I would become the coach, then he would entrust the boy to me immediately. But I couldn't give him that promise already in February [2015]".

Since moving to PSG, Mbappe has been involved in six goals from his first six matches, scoring three and assisting three more.
